One act plays of all genres presented in 2 two week "waves". A refreshing collection that offers something for everyone! Advance Tickets $15 $20 at door
Since 2006, Artists’ Exchange has hosted the One Act Play Festival (OAPF) for the entertainment and enjoyment of the Cranston community. Short plays are submitted from local, regional, and national playwrights and then selected for performance by a panel of directors/actors. Casts feature community actors ranging in sex, age, and experience levels.
This year the Festival proudly celebrates its 10th anniversary and aims to showcase new playwrights mixed in with patron favorites, highlighting the best short plays that were submitted for review.
WAVE I: July 17th - 25th
WAVE II: July 31st - August 8th
Thank you to all the playwrights - local, national, and international - for submitting their plays for our consideration! We received well over 1,000 plays – three times as last year – and it was an exciting and difficult process to whittle down to our 16 selections. Thank you for your patience in announcing this summer's line-up.
Celebration is our theme this year. We celebrate creativity in our community with this One Act Play Festival and we are honored to highlight the original work of local, Festival fan favorite, and new playwrights. Without further ado, drum roll...
